Cheaper Than Dirt is not to be trusted (IMHO), They do in fact price gouge and misrepresent products.

WTS, I do not believe they actually sell guns. They have function to put sellers and buyers together, much like Autionarms, Gunsamerica and Gunbroker.

I personally will not be shopping with them anymore. Some items are well priced, and others are completely unique or hard to find, and CTD can offer them. However, after the price gouging, and what they did to the market after December 2012 I feel much better working with a smaller online retailer. Feel free to PM for some suggestions. Be sure to shop around to find the best deal on your AR choice, and be sure to check the shipping fees.

I only use them when they have the lowest prices. If their prices are too high, I don't buy from them. They do have funky store policies on shipping to Kommiefornia that I don't understand. Like some 5.56 ammo they won't ship, but some .223 ammo they will. I don't understand them. Also I don't like how they have different warehouses and if you order multiple type of items they hit you with additional shipping from multiple locations.

I wont buy any thing from them ever again after I seen how bad they took advantage of the ammo shortage. Buds guns are a good place to shop online.

Dirt must be expensive where they come from.

Saves me from writing the exact response, thanks!

I've done thousands of dollars of business with them over the last 2 years.
They ship promptly, things are well packaged and arrive error free, just as described.

They have made a lot of enemies on this board in the last 6 months especially when they raised thier prices 200 % on some items during the panic months.

And they do deserve some scorn and lost business for that.

me, I will not go so far as to boycott them as they have the most user friendly website and a very complete selection and have p[performed well for me in the past.


Most their items are now priced same as elsewhere again some lower, some higher.
On some items they are too high so I dont buy.
On many they are quite good.

I dont believe in demonizing folks who have done me so many good turns in the past and many items are hard to find elsewhere

CTD did a lot of damage to their customer base. As a company they can charge whatever price they want. But they offended good repeat customers their concrete ship becomes Adobe and starts to leak and ultimately sinks....
